Disbaled Images on Toolbar

Why do my images look 'blocked out' when disabled on the Toolbar in VB6? Does the bitmap have to be colored a certain way in order for it to display properly when disbaled?

That is normal. When an image is "disabled" it's disabled and vb6 shows a grey image meaning (letting the user know) it's disabled. I think you can change the property "style" to "graphical" and it won't do this.

Yeah, I know it greys out but it seems to do it wrong... for example a typical copy toolbar icon is a solid filled shape as opposed to a nicely etched picture. Does this make sense?
